Following Microsoft’s announcement, as of January 14th 2020 the Windows 7 operating system will have reached its commercial end of life period. This subsequently means that Microsoft are no longer going to supply security updates and additional support.

Windows 7 has been used for both home and business systems since July 2009 and has been a staple product in our customers’ homes and businesses. After almost 11 years since it launched, it’s now crucial that users upgrade.

Windows 7 will continue to operate as normal, however using outdated software will leave you vulnerable to cyber-attacks as well as compatibility issues with your co-operating software in the future. It can also lead to serious security issues that are unable to be rectified as support will have ceased to exist.

As Windows 10 is the most recent operating system, upgrading today will give you multiple benefits such as increased speed and functionality as well as optimum security. Windows 10 boasts major improvements in reliability which will ensure your business gets the protection it deserves. Minster will promise that your transition from Windows 7 to Windows 10 will be smooth and effortless, allowing business to resume as normal almost straightaway.

We strongly recommend speaking to the Minster team in order to arrange an upgrade to the latest operating system. If you would like more information or advice regarding this matter, please call our team today on 01562 68211 or email sales@minstermicro.co.uk.
